Girls of Color Initiative

The Ms. Foundation’s Girls of Color Initiative (GOCI) began in late 2018 as a national initiative centering cisgender, transgender, and queer girls of color living at the intersection of multiple systems of oppression.

GOCI provides grantmaking, leadership development, and capacity building resources to support the advocacy and movement building of girls of color in the U.S. and its territories.

The initiative prioritizes supporting groups led by and/or centering adolescent girls of color, and cross-movement building efforts centering their advocacy needs.

GOCI’s 3 goals are 1) Shift power to Girls of Color to create change, 2) Move resources to support girls and the organizations that support them, 3) Leverage Ms.’s institutional capital to influence the field in support of girls and the organizations that support them.
